Book Description

2 April 2013 In Death (Book 34)

'What would cause someone to want so many people, surely many of them strangers, to slaughter each other?'

The scene that greets Lieutenant Eve Dallas one terrible evening in New York is more shocking than she has ever witnessed. The downtown bar is strewn with bodies - office workers who have been sliced, bludgeoned or hacked to death with the nearest weapon available, turning on each other in a desperate blinding rage.

As Eve and her husband Roarke - who owns the bar among his many properties - investigate the city, they link the attacks back to the Urban Wars and the chemical warfare used all those years ago. With another slaughter imminent, Eve must turn to unexpected sources to stop a killer pursuing revenge by creating mass carnage . . .

Nora Roberts/JD Robb doesn't write a bad book, but I do wonder why she felt the need to rush this out - because that's what it felt like: rushed and shorter than most. Also, this year, she's not putting out her usual Halloween offering in the antho that comes out November-ish, so I expected a longer, more complex tale, before next February's offering, Calculated In Death.

This one in fact seemed a bit similar to another ID tale, with an hallucinogen/artificial airborne weapon, but still, I expected a great tale. I got a decent one, even though I had to go back and re-read a couple of pages when the baddie's identity was revealed, as I hadn't clocked how she'd drawn her conclusion. Yes, I am guilty of a touch of skim-reading, for the first time EVER, with an Eve Dallas tale, and I nearly missed it.

From there on, it was typical Eve - goad the suspect into giving you what you want, using mind games, but not, this time, a chance for the bad guy to thrown a punch first, so she could take him down, allegedly in self-defence. And yes, we've seen the bigging-up of the ego scenario more than once, and this time round, it was a bit tiring. However, that wasn't what made me rate this the lowest of any Eve Dallas tale I've read.

For me, the series isn't just about Eve and Roarke, but also about the myriad characters that form part of her posse that I've come to love, and in recent tales - discounting New York To Dallas, which they couldn't be in - they've all done a disappearing act. I mean, when was the last time that we interacted with Charles and Louise, or Mavis and family? What about hearing more about Morris and how he's getting on after the death of his lover? What about McNab? There were maybe 2 mentions of him, but he didn't even make an appearance.

4.0 out of 5 stars Familiar and comfortable 14 Sep 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you haven't already read any of the "in death" series then don't start here - you will not understand what is going on as the author doesn't introduce you to the characters or fill you in on much background. The first book in the series in Naked in Death: In Death Series: Book 1 which is the place to start. If you have already read some of the books then you will probably be OK with this one but there are quite a lot of references to New York To Dallas (In Death Series) so it is probably useful if you have read that one.

For those of us who have read (and own) the whole series this book reintroduces us to a world we already know and characters with whom we are already familiar. Many of the familiar characters are not present in the book or only get a brief appearance-in which is OK by me as I sometimes feel that some of the novels are contrived to include as many existing characters as possible. I was disappointed, however, in that (with the exception of Somerset) we don't really get to know any of the familiar set of people any better.

Familiarity is really the name of the game with this book. The plot is very similar to several which have been used before. The motive of the killer turns out to be quite commonplace and there are some recurring themes including Eve's nightmares (am I the only one getting a bit tired of these ?). Roarke gets heavily involved as usual and, as has happened before, the murderer is revealed about half way through and the rest of the book is about making it stick (although there is an unexpected twist near the end).

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than the last one!!! 20 Sep 2012
By Sal
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I read a couple of reviews before my book arrived. Having bought the whole series I was eagerly awaiting this one and wondered what was coming as a couple of people seemed to be disappointed with it. It certainly isn't her best (for me that was Survivor in Death)but well away from her worst (in my case the last one out Celebrity in Death, didn't enjoy that one at all). Would certainly recommend for fans, yes there is less "friend and family stuff" but its nice one in a while for the actual police work to be the main event! Having said that, hope the friends and family are back in the next one! Better insight into Summerset although it was a shame he wasn't mentioned at the end when everything had come out. Next one's apparently due out in February so looking forward to that having read the synopsis. On the whole, its a decent enough read, although it does lack the "can't put it down" element of the earlier books.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 12 Sep 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If like me you have been waiting for this new installment you may be disappointed. I found it a little laborious and even skipped pages which would normally never happen with this series. There was hardly any of the normal banter with Mavis or Nadine or indeed any of the humour. It was quite tedious and long winded in places and a little boring.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just re-read this book 13 Mar 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I love J D Robb's In Death series. I have just re-read this book having just finished Dead Letter Day (Rethink New Novels). That book left me wanting more and sadly there is only one so far. So I have reread this one instead and have to say it was brilliant even better second time around. I love the fast paced style of writing and the characterisation. Like chocolate one bite is never enough.

Another JD Robb futuristic detective classic, if that isn't a characteristic. Futuristic science combined with good detective skills and at the bottom of it an age old motive. Read more

As always J D Robb writes a good book.

Having read most of the 'in death' series , they are all following the same formula.

But I still enjoy them.
